Mechatronics Design Engineer

job in Eindhoven, the Netherlands

As a Mechatronics Design Engineer, you will be involved in the design and test of mechatronic systems and control systems, preferably in the area of nanopositioning scanning stages. The job requires a strong technical individual contributor to:

  • Derive lower level requirements and designs for mechatronic positioning and measurement devices;
  • Generate models or simulations in Advanced Simulation in MATLAB and Simulink that analyze expected Performance which can be used to drive a multi-discipline team to an optimal solution;
  • Dynamic modelling of Module response to external disturbances;
  • Position and presence sensors operations and development;
  • Design and implementation of servo control systems;
  • Technically own and drive the decisions necessary to complete the tasks
  • Work with designers from supporting engineering disciplines in order to converge on an overall design solution;
  • Interface with module architects to derive requirements for the sub-modules;
  • Write performance specification documents at sub-module level and feed sub-budgets down to the lower levels;
  • Create sub-module level test protocol docs and subsequent test result analysis to prove submodule and sub-system level performance specs are met;
  • Understand and be able to communicate the implication of sub-module level errors on higher module level performance and on other sub-modules;
  • Clearly communicate technical performance in both written and verbal presentations to stakeholders;
  • Take responsibility for the deliverables to the project: on time delivery to specified performance at the right quality;
  • Create and manage plans for deliverables to the project, ensure alignment with the project plan. Mechatronics Design Engineer

You will be trusted to recommend design changes or substitution of materials when appropriate. You will also advise users of appropriate actions to correct malfunctions and may recommend changes in user procedures. In this role you will travel for about 5 percent of your time. You will report directly to the CTO.
